Fire consumes home Owner: ‘Everyone is safe. We will rebuild’ BY CHRIS JOHNSON Shaw News Service

A home in the 3000 block of North Blackhawk Road in rural Oregon was destroyed by a fire Wednesday afternoon. Firefighters responded to a report of smoke at the home owned by Greg Wessman shortly before 3 p.m. Oregon Assistant Fire Chief Randy Travis said they thought they had the upper hand on the fire before it flashed up. The walls and roof of the two-story

to extinguish the blaze. Travis said everyone got out of the house safe. Wessman was on the scene and had a positive outlook. “Everyone is safe,� he said. “We will rebuild.� At least eight fire departments responded to the scene including Oregon, Mt. Morris, Stillman, Byron, Ashton, Franklin Grove, Ogle Lee, and Lynn Scott-Rock. They were assisted at the scene by the Oregon Ambulance.

An eye exam is a good idea, especially if things are starting to look a little fuzzy around the edges.

Wayne and Deb Larson of Harmon warm themselves by the fireplace inside a snow cave on their property. The igloo also features a door flap, a chimney for ventilation and a sunroof.

Their other home is an igloo Cool grandparents make the best out of snowy winter BY KIMBERLY WATLEY Special to SVM

HARMON – Wayne and Deb Larson have a little case of cabin fever. But they aren’t letting winter doldrums get the best of them. Late Friday night, the couple decided to use the drifting snow in their yard to their advantage. They built an igloo. By daybreak Saturday, Wayne was scraping the last of the excess snow out of the entrance. It took roughly 8 hours to dig out a perfect snow cave, complete with a fireplace, in the nearly 6-foot drift. Wayne, 49, blames Deb, 48, for the idea. Deb blames their 11-year-old grandson, Gabe Hackman. After several days off of school, because of the cold, Gabe was going through a little cabin fever of his own. He lives in southern Illinois and challenged his grandparents to a fort-off, of sorts. They would compare photos over the Internet to see who did the best job. Gabe didn’t get enough snow to make one of his own, but that didn’t stop his grandparents from holding up their end of the deal. While Wayne dug out wheelbarrows of snow, Deb sat in a director’s chair, at what would ultimately become the igloo entrance, guiding him. “She was also my emergency contact, in case it caved in on me,� he said. Laughing, she added, “And I was the supervisor.� “Yeah, she wanted me to carve a fireplace, shelves with knickknacks and doodads, hang curtains,� he joked. The playful couple is notorious in their family for always making time to have fun, especially when it comes time for their grandchildren to visit. “If the weather is bad and the kids are here, we’ll just camp out in the living room,� Deb said. “Last time, we put a full-size, five-man tent up. We had a bubble

party in there, played the piano, danced and had a good time.� Bedtime rules go out the window, too, they admitted. “We were having popsicles and hot chocolate at 11 that night.� When Gabe, who lived with the Larsons for a year while his mom, Ashley Kauffman, was stationed in Afghanistan, saw a picture of the igloo, he said, “That is the best igloo I have ever seen in my whole life!� Because they live more than 3 hours away, visiting isn’t an option right now. Deb took video for her grandson so he could feel like he was there. “My kids love going there,� Kauffman said. “Mom and Wayne are always doing something crazy and fun. It’s never anything but crazy big adventures.� “When they come to Grandma and Papa’s, they don’t look at the TV or video games,� Wayne said. “We spend most of our time outside.� When the temperature warms up and the snow melts, they will bring the grandkids out for what they call a Hilly Billy Roundup. A few years ago, Wayne began building a waterslide. He started with seven Slip ‘N Slides that he fastened together. But being a “go-big-or-go-home� kind of a guy, Wayne each year has added to what now is a mega water slide. “It’s really more of a bubble slide,� Deb said, laughing. “You put a little soap on your butt and woo! He cut big barrels in half, used lumber and pallets, and now it’s a 150-foot slide.� With child-like excitement, Wayne said, “Oh, I’ll probably make it bigger for next year.� Gabe said he hopes he and his sister, Charlie Mae, who is 18 months old, get a chance to visit before the igloo melts. If they don’t, his grandparents say, it’s OK because there is always another “crazy big adventure� waiting for them when they can.

ROCK FALLS

City’s economic development leader retiring Henrekin says she is proud of effort with Sterling, Dixon STAFF REPORT news@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 591

ROCK FALLS – Sandy Henrekin, executive director of the Rock Falls Community Development Corp. since 2007, will retire next month. “While I will miss the RFCDC

greatly, and the work that we do, my husband and I are very much looking forward to the new opportunities for travel that retirement will bring to our lives,� Henrekin said in a statement released Wednesday. “We have family living throughout the United States, and we also much enjoy traveling and showing our quarter horses.� Henrekin not only served as the executive director, but also was one of the previous charter members of the group, along

with other local leaders. The group started in 2002. Its president, Norm Deets, has worked with Henrekin since 2005. Sandy “Sandy will be Henrekin sorely missed, and her qualities will be hard to duplicate,� he said in a statement. Henrekin said she was confident that support from the board of directors, along with

the city of Rock Falls, will be “an asset in attracting new talent to the executive director position.� “The Rock Falls community has been my home for many years,� she said. “I ran my business here, raised my children here, and have now ended my career here trying to make a difference.� Henrekin said one of the projects she took pride in was I-88 West, a regional effort to promote economic development

along the interstate corridor. It includes development agencies in Dixon and Sterling. The groups “have been working for many years now, marketing our communities as a region and working together in assisting our existing companies,� she said. “We share in the successes and the disappointments, realizing that job creation or losses, anywhere in the region, affect us all.� Her last day of work will be March 14.

We’re going to take care of our citizens and visitors the best we can.� Fire Chief Don Heller said that in 2013, the fire department was called numerous times to respond when the Oregon Ambulance Service had no ambulance available or needed additional manpower. Several firefighters are already first responders or emergency medical technicians. “Last year we did 91 of those,� Heller said. “Mt. Morris has come

BY VINDE WELLS Shaw News Service

Recent delayed responses to ambulance calls have prompted Oregon Fire Protection District officials to look into developing a publicly funded ambulance service through the fire department. “We’re just in the preliminary stages,� said Brian Stuart, secretary of

First St., Oregon. 50 times, and Byron has come several times, too.� Stuart, himself a fulltime Lombard firefighter, said Oregon is the only area fire department that does not have an ambulance service. The Oregon area is served by Oregon Ambulance Service, a privately

owned ambulance service with a paid staff. The situation became serious enough, Heller said, that Ogle County 911 operators asked for a procedural change that would get medical help on the scene faster. 911 Coordinator Sandra Beitel said several area fire departments, which, like Oregon’s, are manned by volunteers in most cases, have difficulty getting a crew for their ambulances during the day when most of them are at work. “This is county-wide, not

just for Oregon,� she said. “If we get a call and get no response [from the ambulance service] in 5 minutes, we do a second tone-out and automatically send first responders.� The new procedure is for back-up calls only, she said, where the ambulance service has two ambulances and one is already out on a call. Stuart said the ambulance response time is especially crucial in a rural area like Oregon where the nearest hospital is a half-hour away. Betty Ferris, who with

her husband Jim, manages the Oregon Ambulance Service, said Monday that the service, which has two ambulances, has experienced no delays in response time. “We are staffed 24 hours a day, and we have no problems,� she said. Currently, Ferris said, the 15 people on the staff include paramedics and EMTs of other levels. Heller, however, said the Oregon Ambulance Service has been unavailable on several occasions, including New Year’s Day, when it did not run at all.

ROCK FALLS

City gets $250,000 home rehab grant Ongoing program has now brought in $1.6 million BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 570

ROCK FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The city will receive a $250,000 federal grant to fix up several single-family homes this year. The money comes from the Single-Family OwnerOccupied Rehabilitation program, administered by the Illinois Housing Development Authority. The program is funded by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The ongoing program helps low-income homeowners make necessary but costly repairs such as roofing, furnaces, windows and wiring. It targets potential health and safety problems, and building code violations. The program is run locally by municipalities, as is the case with Rock Falls, or by nonprofit organizations that head up housing programs. The city will be able to do another six homes this year, said Mark Searing, Rock Falls building inspector. He said the homeowners are chosen from the top

To apply Applications for the Single-Family OwnerOccupied Rehabilitation grant program are available at www. rockfalls61071.com. For more information, call City Administrator Robbin Blackert at 815-564-1366. of the waiting list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are chosen on a first-come, firstserved basis, but it also depends on how many houses we apply for,â&#x20AC;? Searing said. The application calls for breaking down requests into different categories, such as

general low-income or seniors over 65. Two homes have been chosen, and letters are being sent to verify application information on two others, Searing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing write-ups on two homes now to put up for bids,â&#x20AC;? Searing said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once we sign the paperwork, contractors have 90 days to complete the jobs.â&#x20AC;? Most of the contractors are from Rock Falls, Sterling or Dixon, Searing said. Since the city started applying for the grants in 2006, $1.6 million has been made available to rehab city homes, Mayor

Bill Wescott said. For those interested, however, patience comes into play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an illustrated need for this program, given there are currently 117 people on the waiting list for this grant money,â&#x20AC;? Wescott said. Under the program guidelines, amounts between $4,000 and $40,000 can be used to bring a property up to codes and standards. The money comes in the form of a deferred, forgivable loan with no interest. If a loan is less than $14,999, it is forgiven over 5 years; loans between $15,000 and

But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to worry. You can make it yourself â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a homemade â&#x20AC;&#x153;food prepperâ&#x20AC;? version of liquid gold. Just in case. Before you laugh, hear me out. Processed cheese, like those individually wrapped singles, often gets a bad rap, but just try getting that perfect ooze and silky texture from any other cheese when you melt it. Real cheese tends to separate when heated, the proteins clumping together while fats and moisture ooze out in the most unattractive way. Processed cheese can take the heat and keep it together, with a glossy sheen to boot. Even the molecular gastronomers are fans. Nathan Myhrvoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Modernist Cuisine at Homeâ&#x20AC;? contains a number of processed cheese variations, and Heston Blumenthal has a rather intense recipe to go with his reinvented hamburger. I wanted an easy method I could make at home, using ingredients I could find at the supermarket. I tried Myhrvoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Blumenthalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s methods, along with a number of others, and then went off and experimented some more. It took a little while â&#x20AC;&#x201C; actually, more than 20 trials and at least 10 pounds of cheese â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before I found something I liked. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start with the cheese. Processed cheese has traditionally consisted of a blend of cheeses, typically Colby and cheddar. For a home version, a mild cheddar is perfect for flavor (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not overly intense). In order to get the right â&#x20AC;&#x153;oozeâ&#x20AC;? when the cheese is melted, you need to add a liquid. I tried recipes that called for beer, milk, water and even infused sherry. I went with a blend of water and dry white wine. The wine not only gives the cheese a nice tang, it also helps to hold the cheese together as it melts, as when making a classic fondue.

But wine alone is not enough. Myhrvold and Blumenthal both use sodium citrate (derived from citrus, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also used in a number of commercial processed cheeses) as an emulsifier. Sodium citrate isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that hard to find online, but you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find it at the local market. To help hold the liquid and cheese together, I added dehydrated milk and tapioca starch. I tested a number of thickeners, including the gelatin preferred by Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Test Kitchen, but I liked the texture of tapioca, and, unlike gelatin, tapioca keeps the cheese vegetarian. Finally, I added a little butter for richness and moisture, and a touch of salt to bump up the flavors. To make the cheese, finely grate the cheddar and pulse it in a food processor along with the milk powder, tapioca starch and salt, and bring the water, wine and butter to a boil in a small saucepan. With the motor running, slowly drizzle the liquids onto the cheese to melt and combine. Finally, spoon the cheese into a plastic wrap-lined ramekin (you could use a square mold for a more supermarket look, but I love the idea of a wheel of cheese), and then chill it in the refrigerator for a few hours to firm up. The results? Amazing cheese that melts just right, using only a handful of ingredients. After mild cheddar, I tried â&#x20AC;&#x153;processingâ&#x20AC;? other cheeses with varying degrees of success. I found smoked fresh Gouda makes a great processed cheese, as does the sharp cheddar from Tillamook. But when I tried sharp cheddar from another producer, it simply didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. Different cheeses vary in consistency, and the recipe will need to be tweaked. Still, that processed Gouda made an excellent mac â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cheese. Most recipes call for melting the cheese in a roux-based sauce; while that helps keep the cheese from separating as it cooks, the flour also clouds the pure cheese flavor. Because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to add the roux, the cheese flavor was richer, more pronounced. Cheesepocalypse averted, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be using the processed mild cheddar in my queso dip for the game on Sunday. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never buy processed cheese again, but

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like being able to make and flavor it myself. Best of all? I know exactly what went into it.

Smoked Gouda Mac â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cheese 1 hour. Serves 4 to 6 ½ pound dry macaroni or similar pasta 5 tablespoons butter, divided ½ chopped onion ž cup hard cider 1 batch (13 ounces) homemade American cheese, made using smoked Gouda, cut into roughly 1-inch cubes Âź cup milk ž teaspoon salt, more to taste Freshly ground pepper 2/ cup panko bread 3 crumbs Âź cup finely grated smoked fresh Gouda cheese 1. Boil the pasta to al dente according to the instructions on the packaging. Drain the pasta well and spread it out on a rimmed baking sheet, very lightly oiling the pasta to keep it from sticking. Set aside and heat the oven to 375 degrees. 2. In a large, heavybottomed saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the chopped onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened and lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. 3. Stir in the hard cider, scraping to dislodge any flavorings from the base of the pan. Bring the cider to a simmer. 4. Add the cheese, a few cubes at a time, stirring to melt. When the cheese is mostly melted, stir in the milk. Once all of the cheese is melted and the ingredients are thoroughly incorporated to form a sauce, stir in the cooked pasta. Season with the salt and several grinds of black pepper, or to taste. 5. Spoon the pasta and sauce into a 1.5- to 2-quart gratin dish. 6. To make the topping, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter, then stir in the bread crumbs and grated Gouda cheese until evenly combined, with the bread crumbs lightly coated with butter. Taste and add a pinch of salt, or as desired. Sprinkle the topping over the pasta. 7. Bake the macaroni until the sauce is bubbly along the edges and the topping is crisp and a light golden color, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly before serving.

Do not rinse the peppers to remove the skin, as rinsing will remove flavor. Stem and seed each pepper, then dice the peppers into roughly Âź-inch pieces. Set aside. 2. In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is softened and lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Stir in the garlic, then add the diced tomatoes and jalapenos. Cook until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in the cumin. 3. Stir in the beer, scraping any flavorings from the base of the pan, then reduce the heat to medium-low and begin to stir in the cheese, a few cubes at a time. Continue to add more cubes as the cheese melts, stirring constantly. 4. Stir in a half-cup milk when most of the cheese has been added, then continue to stir until all of the cheese is melted to form the queso. Adjust the consistency of the queso with additional milk as desired. Taste and adjust the seasoning with 3â &#x201E;4 teaspoon salt, or as desired. This makes about 6 cups queso.
